Anyone who knows us will know that we love anything with a ‘natural glamour’ feel to it. Eye-catching florals, luxurious metallics and a little touch of something wild and untamed. This cake, and it’s gorgeous styled set-up, definitely encompasses all of those things! Obviously, we’re huge fans of a gold sequin drip wedding cake too.
Glamorous rustic gold sequin drip wedding cake!
We created this rustic buttercream cake for the lovely Katie and Chris’ big day! Two very tall tiers (around 7″ deep) finished with a messy white buttercream effect, glam gold sequin drip and a touch of 24k gold leaf! The deep bottom tier was in the couple’s favourite flavour… Coconut and lemon; fluffy Madagascan vanilla cake filled with our Sicilian lemon curd and creamy coconut infused buttercream. For a fun surprise the top tier was a bright rainbow cake with red, yellow, green and purple layers filled with our popular Taittinger champagne and strawberry preserve and vanilla bean buttercream!
How gorgeous are these flowers supplied by the wonderful Forage and Blossom? We fell in love with the teeny tiny peach roses. We dressed the cake with it’s pretty blooms, fresh macarons and sweet meringue kisses at the venue, which was fun. It’s great to work in the finished setting. Usually, we like to finalise everything before delivery and then do a few small adjustments. It was amazing to see the gorgeous marquee set up at the bride’s family home and finish the cake surrounded by a bright fresh floral adorned vintage dressing table!
Katie and Chris opted for our freshly made macarons and meringue kisses too! Macarons are perfect on a gold sequin drip wedding cake! Flavours included our popular Golden Salted Caramel flavour studded with glistening edible sequins filled with our homemade salted caramel sauce. The pretty white macarons feature a luxuriously fun gold splatter and a Vanilla and White Chocolate truffle ganache filling.
We loved the gold mirror topper the couple found for their wedding too! It works perfectly with the golden hints on the cake. We nestled it off to the side so it balanced out the top tier decorations and that pretty gold sequin drip. We also added in a white candy melt ‘sail’ perched behind the florals alongside the gold topper. That added a nice bit of height and drama without taking away focus from the roses and foliage!
We hope Katie and Chris enjoyed an amazing day! We love delivering and setting up every cake, but this was such a gorgeous marquee wedding! Lots of thanks to Forage and Blossom flowers and Eden & Eve wedding planning too for the stunning florals and set up!
Yay! Here’s a ridiculously bright and fun rainbow unicorn cake we created for a birthday party. How insanely cool is this idea? We like to call this kind of cake a ‘freak cake’. It’s inspired by those crazy freakshake milkshakes that are covered with anything and everything sugar-coated. What’s so unicorn about this? Golden unicorn horn, magical sugary treats and rainbow… obviously!
Super magical rainbow unicorn cake!
We were asked to create a fun, gold drip cake for a 15th birthday that was bright in colour… and chocolate. We quickly sketched out our idea for a unicorn cake with a gold sequin drip (we LOVE adding those), a whole white chocolate bar jutting out of the top and oodles of rainbow sprinkles and candies. The lovely folks over at Bakesbox sent us an amazing bottle of their Unicorn Mix Sprinkles, which were utterly perfect for this little cake!
Inside is our Belgian chocolate cake filled with Madagascan vanilla and Belgian white chocolate truffle buttercream. The frosting covering the outside was also our Belgian white chocolate truffle buttercream, but with streaks of super bright colour! We coloured small amounts of frosting in fun neon pink, turquoise, lilac and lemon yellow. Added ‘splodges’ of each around the cake with a small palette knife and then used an icing scraper to create the streaked effect around the sides!
OK. Now for the list of biscuits, candies, chocolates etc that adorn the top and sides of this little beauty. Chopped up Flumps (they’re twisted marshmallow ropes to all the non-UK people out there, Party Rings (donut-like shaped cookies with a sugar glaze), rainbow Smarties, an entire bar of Belgian white chocolate, Bakesbox Unicorn Mix sprinkles, golden fondant unicorn horn, and a Belgian white chocolate ganache drip studded with white confetti sequin sprinkles then painted with edible gold.
Yay! Who wouldn’t want to celebrate when they’ve got this beauty? Back in February we created this gorgeous pink buttercream smothered cake for a fun birthday. Adorned with large bloom white roses, our popular Strawberry Milkshake macarons, pink meringue kisses, a cute personalised gold pick and a glamorous gold sequin drip this cake sure is fabulous!
Gold sequin drip cake heaven!
We honestly can’t stop looking at or even photographing golden drips once we’ve finished a pretty cake like this. They’re gorgeous and oh so glam! To create our golden drips we pipe melted white chocolate along the edge of a chilled cake (though one heck of a steady hand is needed to make sure the drips don’t end up wonky or bumpy) then add confetti style sprinkles and hand paint the entire thing with an edible gold paint. The key bit to this look is making sure the cake is cold! The chilly feel of the cake helps set the chocolate drip as it works its way down the cake meaning no out of control puddles all along the base.
The cake itself was our classic and popular Madagascan vanilla flavour. Three lovely and moist layers of vanilla cake filled with our silky smooth vanilla bean infused buttercream then covered with pretty pastel pink tinted buttercream! Vanilla is definitely one of the best flavours to opt for when a party is involved… it keeps everyone happy!
Each of the Strawberry Milkshake macarons were whipped up, baked, filled and finished by us. It’s one of our most popular flavours for macarons (along with Raspberry Chambord and Salted Caramel). These were carefully arranged around the cake before any gaps were then filled in with pink vanilla meringue kisses, touches of 24k gold leaf, white confetti sprinkles a personalised cake pick and those beautiful large white roses!
